The goal of the Bloustein School’s Undergraduate Internship Program is to create opportunities for students in the public health, health administration, planning and public policy, and policy majors to deliver administrative services and gain practical real-world experience. The internship program allows students to develop a major project under the guidance of a supervisor, and also connects students with professionals in their fields of study.
